LAKEVIEW — A 31-year-old South Side man has been charged in the carjacking and sexual assault of a woman in Lakeview earlier this month, police said.
Jarqueese O'Brian Henigan of the 10300 block of South Halsted Street is charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm, possession of a controlled substance, armed robbery with a firearm, resisting a police officer and being an armed habitual criminal, police said. He also is wanted on an out-of-state arrest warrant.
Police said a 24-year-old woman was leaving a garage in the 3700 block of North Fremont Street about 8:20 p.m. March 9 when Henigan walked up with a handgun, sexually assaulted the woman, robbed her and forced her into the trunk of her car.
Henigan drove to several spots on the South Side — trying to withdraw money from ATMs, police said — and at 9:55 p.m. hit a tree in the 11500 block of South Throop Street. He got out of the car and ran away, and the woman was able to escape from the trunk and call police.
The woman was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center with minor injuries, police said.
Henigan was arrested Friday in the 10300 block of South Halsted. At a bond hearing Sunday, Cook County Judge Laura Sullivan denied bail for Henigan, the Tribune reports.
The attack came less than two weeks after a 25-year-old woman was raped and robbed in her car in the 1200 block of West Barry Avenue shortly after midnight Feb. 28. In that case, police said, an armed man robbed the woman before forcing her into her car at gunpoint and raping her.
While officials said they believed the two attacks could be related, Henigan has not been charged in the Feb. 28 case.
